The Elegiac Heaney Sleeps Now!


After having poured forth the poetic art,
experiencing the conflicting feeling all inside,
having the hand on a note of hope,
adorning the literary canvas by the sound strokes
of lyrical beauty and deep critiques,
listening to the sounds of nature with a greedy ear,
mourning many a dear partings in profound elegies;
after having celebrated the beauty, and the intensity
of the earthly existence,
justifying every beat of his heart,
the dear poet's eyes are closed for the world
in hope to watch more wonders to ensue after death...
